CrossFit - Greg Glassman

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. - Greg Glassman

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.

Crossfit Golden - Eliza/Paige

1200 - 4 of us (Kel)

Warm Up

1 min couch stretch
1 min pigeon stretch

3 rounds of
10 air squat
10 lateral lunge
10 plate halos
5 plate thrusters
5 burpees

1 min front rack warm-up
5 front squat
5 push press
5 thruster


Rounds of 15, 12 and 9 reps for time of:
(recommended weights 135/95 lbs)

I went with 65# and felt really good going 9/6; 7/5; and 5/4 on the thrusters.  I stepped up on the burpees and finished in 8:09 (well within the 6-9 minute range)


Three sets of:
Bulgarian Split Squat (8-10 reps each @ 30X0)
Rest 30 seconds
Single-Arm Trap Raises (8-10 reps @ 2111)
Rest 30 seconds

I used 15# bar for the split squats and 5# for the trap raises.

Coaching cue - wider stance on split squat, knee should not go forward of toes; trap raise at 45 degree angle from mid-line of body


Started with foam rolling and reverse hypers.  Finished with black band back hammock and stretching off the end of the ghd.  Back felt good start to finish.
